Hello,

I need a contact form on my website, that will send to my email address what the visitor enter in the form fields. The problem is that I can't run any php scripts.. is there a way to use some html form?

Hi,

The best thing to do is find out if your ISP/Host provides a form mail script that can be used as the following:

If not you can use the mailto method which is very simple but has many drawbacks

Thank you for your suggestions! I found a site that offers remotely hosted contact forms, www.emailmeform.com . Basically, I paste the html code in my website, and it calls the php script on their server who sends the email. Wink

That's a great solution! Should stop spammers from harvesting your email address which is one drawback of using the mailto method.

Thanks for the update!
